MEDIA ADVISORY: Statement of Senior Associate Justice David M. Borden and Chief Court Administrator William J. Lavery 

Connecticut Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice David M. Borden and Chief Court Administrator William J. Lavery have issued the following statement regarding the resolution of The Hartford Courant Company, American Lawyer Media, Inc. d/b/a Connecticut Law Tribune v. William J. Lavery, Chief Court Administrator, and David M. Borden, Senior Associate Justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court Acting Pursuant to C.G.S. Section 51-3.

“The Judicial Branch’s position has always been that, as administrators, neither the Chief Justice nor the Chief Court Administrator has the authority to alter a Superior Court judge’s ruling.  Both the United States District Court and the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit have affirmed this position.

We are pleased that the plaintiffs have agreed that the matters will be resolved in the state court system, where the interests of all the parties will be protected.”
